Too much writing. Can you sum this up in like 1 paragraph?
nebula10862y@mantekillah got a job i am not educated for. company not doing so well. stagnating - i give it 10 years (hopefully) if company goes down i sit there with no degree for what i am doing. payment not enough to study after work. should i take the same job at a better running company or start from ground up at a big company? Big company -> think could be good in long term
I say that you have all the reasons to leave the current company. It might be tough to tell your granddad that, but he will understand. He will have to.
Why do you care so much about the company not being around in 10 years? That's TEN years dude. In dev years you're experienced as fuck in a matter of just 3-5 years. Ride it out a bit, gain the experience, slowly search for your next gig (i.e., look for reqs and study those reqs), then beef up your resume with those req keywords, get the interview, marry the woman, plop the kids and move on. You're in a better situation than MOST newbies in the biz.
nebula10862y@mantekillah i think the problem is a) the the company will close in the second my granddad dies and he is 74. he is not in the best condition so 10 years is well... more a hope than reality
b) the degree thing
c) the payment (granddad claims that company is not being so well like it is supposed to) and therefore it is useless to ask for a raise.
oh and totally forgot d) the average age is above 55 and no fresh blood in sight because of c)
